15-17 March 2016 / Warsaw
The Baltic+ course is a joint initiative of the National Meteorological Services of Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Poland. It aims to increase the knowledge of, and skills in, using satellite observations, and provide a meeting place for exchanging ideas, practices and knowledge.
The three day workshop will focus on practical issues, with the main topic being using EUMETSAT data to identify clouds, especially low clouds and fog. Using both satellite and NWP data in nowcasting and issuing warnings will be prime subjects of the training.
To prepare participants for the classroom course and reduce differences in their knowledge an online phase is also being run in February 2016. The Moodle platform will enable participants to go through training resources and to do learning activities and self-assessment quizzes.
